Ron Williams Jr. Plays "Horton" the Elephant.  He says:  "Seussical appeals to people of all ages, with the cartoonish nature of the show appealing to children and with adults remembering childhood stories.
At one point or another, our audience sat on someone's lap while they read them the story of 'Horton Hears a Who,'" Williams said. The overall theme is to just help your neighbor. In this current political climate, it seems fitting to be producing such a simple show with such a universal message."
